    Default Error: "Illegal start of expression"

    When I compile this script, it sends me an error, "Illegal start of expression", on the 4th line of the next script:

    public void timeTick()
    {
    minutes.increment();
    if(minutes.getValue() == 0) && (hours.value < 11)// it just rolled over!
    hours.value = hours.value + 1;

    updateDisplay();
    }


    What's wrong here??? please helppp!

    you close the if statement early :D

    if(minutes.getValue() == 0) && (hours.value < 11)

    --->

    if(minutes.getValue() == 0 && hours.value < 11)

    Or

    Java Code:
    if((minutes.getValue() == 0) && (hours.value < 11))

    Mine and his were really the exact same thing, it may be easier to group up and separate conditions as I did though.
